Gary Setchell believes King's Lynn Town deserved their slice of late luck that denied the visitors a point in Norfolk.

The Linnets were 2-1 up against the Rebels going into time added on at The Walks when keeper Alex Street nearly played his part in the second home defensive mix-up of the afternoon. The shot-stopper made a mess of trying to receive a headed back-pass from centre-back Matty Castellan and only served to push the ball into the air.

Warren Harris profited from Lewis Putman's challenge to win the loose ball but Geoffrey Russell ruled the latter had fouled Street and chalked off the equaliser.

'I think the ref's made a mistake at the end there. I don't think it was a foul,' said Setchell.

'I think it was another defensive mix-up and it should have been 2-2 if I'm being honest. It's one of them ones that went for us. We feel we've had a few go against us this season and I've been coming out here and saying 'I'm sure it'll even itself out'.

'I think we deserved to win and for me it would have been a massive injustice if we'd have come away with a draw. But if I was Slough I would be getting on the bus feeling a little bit aggrieved.'

Liam Hurst's stunning 25-yard half volley and Castellan's winner, his first goal for Lynn, was split by another embarrassing moment for Street. He caused confusion between himself and full-back Jordan Yong by racing 30 yards from his goal which allowed the grateful Charlie Mpi to walk the ball into an empty net.

Setchell added: 'I don't know what he's doing that far out of his goal. It's not just the mistake, it was a whole momentum changer. It gave them a massive lift, killed us for 20 minutes and changed the whole complexion of the game. It was a mix-up but I think Jordan was in control of the situation because he's goal-side. I think if the goalkeeper stays where he is Jordan can just pass it back to him. That's how I see it and I think that's how Pedro (Street) sees it as he's held his hands up.

'It's one of those unfortunate incidents that you get now and then. Last week against Biggleswade at 1-1 he made a hell of a save that probably got us the three points. It's just how he is at the minute – he's either brilliant or costing us goals.'
